One of my publishers is celebrating its 10th Anniversary this month. Check out Samhain Publishing’s month-long celebration schedule here. And remember to visit their Facebook page this weekend for giveaways and swag. All you have to do is tell them your weekend plans in the comment section to be in with a chance to win.
Here’s the blurb:
Petra Brooks never wanted a man like her father. A charmer with light fingers, and an eye for the main chance. But former bad boy Zack Cunningham won’t take no for an answer. When she organizes a silent auction to help fund her godson’s medical treatment, Petra is stunned when Zack bids one hundred grand for her offer of ‘a day performing domestic duties’. Since she knows his interpretation of ‘domestic duties’ will differ from hers, she fears she’ll have a hard time keeping him at bay.
Now a successful entrepreneur, Zack grabs the opportunity to convince Petra that he is a reformed character with legitimate business interests. With her effectively trapped in his apartment for the day, he aims to persuade her to act on the sexual attraction that’s been sizzling between them. If she’s intent on cleaning for him, he’ll make sure that things get really dirty first.

Indecent Exposure, my latest steamy contemporary romance, is now available from Samhain Publishing!
She’s gotten herself into hot water, and the heat just keeps on rising.
Gina McKenzie didn’t make the same mistakes her mother made with men. She just made different ones. Like letting a good one get away—and trusting a bad one to keep her kinky tastes private.
With an ex-lover holding a naked bondage video over her head, she’s forced to reunite with an old college crush to get the dirty on him. Back then, she resorted to humiliating Mitchell Coleman to keep her heart safe. Now she has no choice but to compromise him in the worst possible way.
When Gina walks back into Mitchell’s life and starts seducing him, desire wars with suspicion. Last time this happened, she tossed him to the wolves. If she’s going to serve herself up on a plate, he intends to make her see exactly what she missed by rejecting him all those years ago.
But Mitch soon realizes that Gina has an agenda other than heating up the sheets—and this time he’s not going to let her play him for a fool.
Warning: A bad girl trying to be good, a good guy determined to be bad. Naughty goings-on with a stability ball, lunchtime quickies, and a Parisian hotel room where nobody plans on sleeping.
Thrilled to have my first ever paranormal romance, First Beast, accepted by Samhain Publishing. It won’t be released until the end of the year, and that’s only tentative, but right now I’m basking in the excitement before edits and revisions appear in my inbox. Happy girl!
Masquerade, the first book in Lace Daltyn’s hot new series, Secrets, is now available. There’s an overarching storyline throughout the series featuring Drea Fortier who runs Secrets, and each book focuses on a couple Drea helps, as well as furthering her own story. Here’s the blurb for Masquerade:
The world is full of secrets…
Drea Fortier, a reclusive philanthropist whose painful past influences her belief that there can be no happily ever after for her, reaches out to help others in the hope she can transform their pain and give them hope for the future. Drea’s own story, as well as that of her assistant, Michael Smith, is slowly revealed throughout the Secrets series.
Book One: Masquerade
Frigid bitch. The words seep into Beth Ritmour’s soul, no matter how hard she tries to deny them. A year after her divorce, they still haunt her. So when a mysterious benefactor offers a solution to her problem, Beth takes a vacation from her job as a dental hygienist and follows a cryptic note to Chicago, where she’s soon ensconced as a waitress at Club Masquerade. Although how she’s going to prove she’s not frigid is hard to figure out when the boss makes it very clear that sex, or any precursors to sex, with patrons or employees is strictly taboo. It’s not an easy rule to follow, especially when one deliciously hot bartender keeps very, very close tabs on her.
Lace is running a Celebrating Series feature on her blog. Today, she is highlighting my Brighton Heat trilogy. Click HERE to check out Lace’s blog.
Thanks, Lace! And good luck with Secrets!
… just a few of my favorite things:)
